‘Let’s Remove This Corrupt System’ -Urey

first_imgShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) (From left) ALP Vice standard bearer Duopue and standard bearer Urey uplift their hands to the cheering of their supporters at the 2nd National Convention in Ganta, Nimba CountyALP standard bearer selects a son of Nimba as running matePresidential aspirant Benoni Urey did not show any sympathy to the ruling Unity Party when he told partisans of his All Liberian Party (ALP) to join hands to remove the “corrupt system” from power.In his acceptance speech after he was endorsed as the standard-bearer at the party’s 2nd national convention in Ganta on July 7 and 8, he called on Liberians to deny the Unity Party any chance to continue leading the country.“The UP government is the most corrupt government in Liberian history,” he said. “We do not want a government that will turn our boys and girls into prostitutes.” He, however, did not give further details about his claim.He noted that “This government has abused us for 12 years, divided us and failed to reconcile us.”Mr. Urey said President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has been living like someone displaced for 12 years because of her failure to have completed the renovation work of the Executive Mansion, where he claimed, US$20m has been spent in vain.He told jubilant partisans that he did not want to be president for riches, rather “I want to move the country forward by taking the government resources from Monrovia to the interior.”He said his government will create an environment where the poor will become rich, where the Christian and the Muslim can live together and where the country’s traditions will be respected.Mr. Urey said his government will ensure that 60% of the country’s revenues will be left for county development funds and will ensure equal rights for all Liberians.This 2nd national convention was held under the theme “Let’s get Liberia Working.”  He said, “We want to change Liberia, where all Liberians will get on board for rapid development.”The ALP convention in Ganta coincided with Unity Party standard bearer Joseph Boakai’s weeklong visit to Nimba.Nonetheless, the ALP pulled great numbers of partisans, and many said the crowd at the ALP convention was beyond their expectation.To the joy of thousands of partisans, Urey named a son of Nimba County, Mr. Alexander Duopue as his running mate. Though Mr. Duopue is not popularly known in Nimba, his father, the late Moses Duopue, was a prominent citizen of Nimba, a revolutionary, who was an adviser to the People’s Redemption Council (PRC) military government of the late Master Sergeant Samuel K. Doe.The late Moses Duopue, was from Tappita District, Zohnghain Town and he was allegedly killed at the Gborplay Base of the defunct National Patriotic Front of Liberia headed by former Charles G. Taylor.With Duopue’s son emerging as running mate to Urey, the ALP gets a boost but the move could divide Nimba politically, according to political observers here.Mr. Duopue, in his keynote address, said he is standing on the shoulders of the great fallen sons or heroes of Nimba, including General Thomas Quiwonkpa, David Duayen, Jackson Doe, Eugene Kidua, among others, as well as his father, to bring light to darkness.Mr. Duopue expressed how humble and grateful he was for “such confidence to be reposed in me to be part of the team.” He said the ALP leadership will restore the hope of Liberians, by improving education, providing better healthcare and also improving on the terrible road conditions throughout the country.The government of the ALP will lead the people diligently, and people will once again trust their leaders, Mr. Duopue said.Earlier when he arrived in the city, hundreds of partisans chanted along his route, “We want Urey, we want Urey, No More UP, US rate is too high.” They lined the main street of Ganta and almost brought the city to a standstill. There were scores of placards bearing pictures of Mr. Urey.Upon their arrival, the ALP held a musical festival to welcome its delegates and all sympathizers to the convention where nearly all Liberian musicians were present at the Methodist Gym to entertain the audience.Vice standard bearer Duopue started his education at the St. Mary’s Catholic School in Duala, Bushrod Island, Monrovia.  In 1983, he attended the Kwendin Vocational Training Center (KVTC), Nimba County, where he graduated from secondary education and earned a WAEC Certificate and Diploma. He traveled to the United States and attended the Barringer Annex in Newark, New Jersey. He is also a 1998 graduate of the University of Liberia where he earned a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Accounting majoring in Economics. He also earned a Master of Science degree (MSc) in Accounting and an MBA in Finance from Strayer University, U.S.A. in 2007 and 2009.last_img read more

Woman charged for attempting to kill Cop

first_imgA financial officer was on Tuesday remanded to prison when she appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts charged for attempting to murder a Police Constable.Maryanne DabyTwenty-five-year-old Maryanne Daby of Lot 127 D’Aguiar Park, Houston, Greater Georgetown, was also slapped with two possession charges.She was not allowed to plead to the first charge read to her by City Magistrate Judy Latchman. The charge alleged that on May 13, 2018, at Albert Street and Thomas Lands, Georgetown, Daby attempted to murder Police Constable Christopher Kissoon.However, the financial officer denied having a .32 pistol along with five live .32 rounds of ammunition in her possession while being an unlicensed firearm holder.The court heard from Police Prosecutor Arvin Moore that the 25-year-old was seen firing shots in the air while partying at a racing club when she was approached by Kissoon and commanded to stop.However, according to the Prosecutor, the irritated young woman took the said pistol and pointed it to the officer’s head and pulled the trigger. The prosecutor informed the court that the gun jammed and did not discharge.Attorney for Daby, Mark Waldron, in his bail application told the court that his client was unlawfully detained by ranks as there is no evidence to support the claims of the Virtual Complainant (VC).He argued that no spent shells were acquired by the Police to date, which shows that they would be unable to prove that a gun was indeed discharged.Addressing the possession charges, Waldron noted that his client was a licenced firearm holder; however, said licence expired and Daby is still within the grace period to have it renewed.Waldron questioned why no efforts were made to solicit the Department of Public Prosecution’s (DPP) advice in the matter.Magistrate Latchman however remanded the woman to prison. The case will continue on May 23.last_img read more

Shocking Barcelona kit leak!

first_imgIt is a design that has been used by Barcelona since 1900, but it looks as though the Catalans could be about to disregard 115 years of history by doing away with their iconic blue and red stripes, according to reports from Spain at least.Under the headline ‘Revolution in the new shirt’, Spanish publication Sport claim that Barca are ready to ditch the stripes in favour of a blue shirt with red hoops. They go on to say that club president Josep Maria Bartomeu has given the dramatic design the thumbs up, as the club look to boost falling sales of recent strips.It is believed that the Nike manufacturered kit was unveiled during a secret ceremony at the Camp Nou on Monday.Click the arrow above to see more images of the proposed strip. 2 Barcelona’s stripes have been used for 115 years center_img 2last_img read more

GAA NEWS: TIR CHONAILL GAELS EXPRESS SADNESS AT PASSING OF CLUB MEMBER COLM TULLY

first_imgTir Chonaill Gaels GAA News:Seniors“Another one in the bag” as a prominent club member put it. A huge congratulations to Tir Chonaill Gaels who won their 16th County Championship at Ruislip yesterday afternoon. On a day where the strong wind made conditions extremely difficult, both teams managed to play good football and it turned out to be high-scoring game in the end. The Gaels played into the wind in the first half and a brilliant ’45 from Mark Gottsche got the Gaels on the scoreboard. A well taken free and a rasping goal from Adrian Hanlon soon followed before the Kiernan’s hit back with a goal of their own. Another goal from Seamie Friel brought the tally to 2-02 and the Gaels went in a point down at half-time. The high tempo continued in the second half with both teams trading scores, John McGrath, Niall Boyle and Cathal Magee all getting on the scoreboard and Brian Duddy was in the right place at the right time to score a vital third goal for the Gaels. Commanding performances from Marty McCoy and Cathal Magee were topped off with points from both men taking the final score to 3-10 to 1-12. It was a great all round performance from the lads who dealt with the tough conditions well and a huge congratulations to Barney, Lloyd, JP and all the panel on the historic win. The boys then had an opportunity to watch themselves on TV in the clubhouse later on with style guru Michael Mullen cutting a Jose Murhonio-esque  figure in the dugout as well!
